Yes, Splash® is happening once again. The exhibition will be held together with the annual exhibition of ceramic art Ceramicus-2020 presented by Wellington Potters' Association with guest artist Debbie Pointon. The combined exhibition is one of the highlights of the Wellington arts calendar and not to be missed.

We look forward to another wonderful exhibition with Svetlana Orinko as our Guest Artist. Orinko has received numerous art awards and has been featured across a variety of publications and media including Graeme Stevenson’s "Put Some Colour in Your Life".

Previous Splash® Exhibitions

Splash-2019 showcased over 300 works painted by watercolour artists from across New Zealand. This year's guest artist, Min Kim, has won both national and international recognition for her paintings, including second prize in the Salon International (USA) Art Awards in 2007 as well as the Supreme Award in last year’s Splash exhibition. She is also featured in an episode of the television programme 'Put Some Colour in Your Life'.The annual watercolour exhibition has firmly established itself as a highlight of the Wellington visual arts calendar and it takes place in conjunction with Ceramicus 2019, the annual exhibition of the Wellington Potters’ Association. The combination of watercolours and ceramics has proved very popular with the public.
